Hi, my name is Mrs. Ruthie Eichholz. This is my 26th year in education, 7 years as a teacher and 19 as an elementary counselor. My career started at Vienna Elementary School teaching 6th grade, then I moved to Thomas Jefferson Middle School in Jefferson City teaching 6th grade math and science. Within the Jefferson City Public Schools, I transferred to Southwest Elementary and taught 5th grade for 2 years before becoming their first full time counselor. When Southwest closed as an elementary building, I transferred to Pioneer Trail Elementary. In 2013, I moved to East Elementary. My husband, Todd, and I have 3 daughters, ages 19, 17 and 13. We live in Westphalia, Missouri.
